"I think that one just needs to keep pushing. Things are offensive because sometimes they infringe on other people's liberties but sometimes things are offensive because it catches people off-guard like a surprise and they feel like you didn't give them the time to pick a reaction template that they can perform as a response.
I like the idea that it is the artist's job to prepare people for these types of assaults. I like the idea better that it is artists that instigate these assaults. It is a very contemporary notion if you think about it. Contemporary in the sense that National Security is supposed to be protecting us from the same conflict that they have created-- or the idea that the World Trade Center was a US Government Operation. Its very "conspiracy theorist" which I think people also have a hard time reacting to so they just brush it off." --Britney Spears
